Upcoming Events:

Meeting and Nurturing your Inner Child
Friday. Aug.12th from 7:30pm to 9:00pm

There is a part of our mind that retains the sense of curiosity, awe, and innocence we had as children. It keeps us asking questions about new things, playing and seeking joy, and inspires wonder at the world around us. Our inner-child, as it’s referred to in psychology, can also hold onto the harm caused by feeling unsafe in our youth. This part of our psyche might hold onto feelings of fear, anxiety, loneliness, or insecurity we might have experienced as children, feelings that then make their way out into our thoughts, behaviors, and choices as adults. The influence of our inner child can create havoc in our lives as it takes hold in uncomfortable situations and steers our direction based on those feelings. In this class we take the first steps in learning to take over the role of caring for our inner child’s needs in order to heal and avoid letting pain from our past define our present and future.
Please bring a pen, notebook and an object or picture that would remind you of yourself as a child. Also, as we will be journeying, you could bring a blanket and/or pillow to make yourself comfortable. Feel free to bring a drum or rattle if you have one.

Why do our pets need Reiki?

Do you know that the word Animal comes from the Latin word Anima meaning “Breathe or Soul” and Animalis, the adjective, means “having breath or soul”.  We all know our animal companions have souls, right?

We also know our animal companions are empaths. They try to comfort you when you are upset, sad or sick.  Think back to a time where your companion helped you feel better.  Would anyone like to share a memory?

Many times the animal will take on the negative energy from you.  Then they are holding onto that energy, and they need help in releasing it. Energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.

Reiki helps with that.  What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a “universal energy” is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.

Think of Universal energy as the Stem cells of energy, it is the energy that everything is created from, so it can be used by the entire body. Reiki targets the energy fields around the body. This practice aims to help the flow of energy, remove blocks and feed a depleted energy field. Improving the flow of energy around the body, can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.

Here are 3 important points you need to know about reiki treatments.

  1. Non-invasive Healing, does not require touching the animal, it can even be done virtually.
  2. The Practioner doesn’t need to know the symptoms or the problem.  The Reiki energy goes where it is needed.
  3. The animal is in control of the session.  They allow the energy in as they feel necessary.
  4.  We, as their guardians, can also benefit from the session if we are present.  The Reiki energy is in the room and everyone in the room benefits from it.

 So what can Reiki do for your pet?

  1. Alleviating anxiety, stress, nervousness and producing a state of calm
  2. Increasing energy levels and overall well-being
  3. Supplementing medical treatments
  4. Helping to heal after surgery, injury or trauma
  5. Relieving aches, pains, strains and allergies
  6. Addressing issues with the coat, skin or feathers
  7. Getting pets through depression or bereavement
  8. Strengthen the immune system
  9. Unblock Blocked energy

Just like people, even healthy pets can have occasional physical, emotional and mental imbalances that, left untreated, can manifest illness.  Periodic treatments can help maintain your pet’s natural state of well – being.

In my practice I may incorporate crystals, oils and other healing modalities into the Reiki healing. The treatment for each animal is unique as they are.
